Smallville (2001–2011): Season 10, Episode 3 - Supergirl - full transcript

Clark is stunned when Kara returns to Earth and tells him Jor El sent her to stop the dark force that is coming because he doesn't believe Clark can handle it. Meanwhile, Lois confronts Gordon Godfrey, a shock jock radio DJ who has been crusading against heroes, after he threatens the Green Arrow. However, after Godfrey is possessed by the dark force, he takes Lois hostage and Clark and Kara have to come to her rescue.


And I need you to understand that.
I need you to get behind that.

These illegal aliens
are stealing our jobs...

...they're dodging taxes
and like so many others...

...they're thumbing their noses
in the face of truth...

...justice and the American way.


It's time to sign off now, but a big
thank you to my loyal followers.

We're small but we're loud.

This is Gordon Godfrey saying,
"Night, you all."

Stand up for the American dream.



You will not be saved.

Don't put your faith
in this hero menace.

I wrote this book
because I am afraid for our nation...

...terrified for the innocent people
of this country...

...who are counting on these vigilantes
to lift them up out of the darkness.

Gut of the darkness
and into the light.


These pretenders live in shadows...

...these creatures lurk
in dark corners of our society.

They claim to uphold laws ...

Fifty bucks says the crackpot
with the Blur in his bonnet... just gunning for a little attention.

- Lois.
- Hey.

Sorry about the lame letter,
I'm lousy at goodbyes.

No, I just figured
that something happened.

You mean something like,
"Go to Africa, Lois?"

Well, I may-- Uh--
Maybe I said that, but I ...

I thought you wanted me
to take the job.

No. it-- Well-- Look, I knew
it was a big break for your career.

Right, well, um,
but now that you're back are we, uh...'?


Of course.

Unless you're disappointed
I'm not blonder?


- No, she's, um ...
- Misguided.


She's no Lois Lane.

Well, obviously.

Strangest thing about Miss Grant.

She was, um...

...conveniently volunteered
to cover a dogsled race in Alaska.


We know who our real heroes are
and they are not these faceless mutants.

These aberrations
skulking in the shadows.

Their powers serve
their secret vigilante agenda.


They're really into this guy,
aren't they?

Well, I'm sure the Blur knows that
he is just taking pot shots to sell books.

Yeah. I mean, this guy's probably
not even on the Blur's radar.

--serving our Country instead of himself.

And what about this Blur?

A freak. A pariah so disfigured,
he doesn't dare show his face.

Is this the kind of savior you want
your Children believing in? I say, "No!"


On second thought,
this blustering blowhard...

...just crossed the line.
GODFREY: I say, "No," to what ...

Break out the marshmallows, Clark,
I'm gonna roast this turkey.

Wait Lois.

I say stop the menace.



isn't that your cousin, Clark?

"The Maiden of Might." Seriously.
Alliterate much?

I need to find Kara.

Bye-bye, Barbie dream desk.

Maybe someone's figured out
where she flew off to.

I can't believe
I just said that out loud.

You must've been pretty surprised
by your cousin's superhero status.

Well, yeah. She didn't tell me about it.

She must have had a close encounter
with a meteor rock?

Yeah, that's what happened.

She was infected the last time
she was in town.

But why would she flaunt
her special skills?

Coming out is a terrible,
terrible move.

You saw those crowds, Clark.
All their doubts and mistrust.

Yeah, mutant vigilantes.

I can't believe people would turn on
their heroes that fast.

But in the end, Lois,
she did win them over.

You never know.
Maybe if the Blur...

...was more honest
and showed his face like Kara...

...people would be able to trust him.

Maybe Godfrey's book
wouldn't get so much attention.

That's a horrible idea.

The Blur got it right
and Kara could learn from him.

By not staying in the shadows,
she not only puts herself in danger...

...she puts you in danger too.

She put me in danger?

I mean everyone around her.

All I'm saying is, Ubergirl makes for a
great headline...

...but people will swarm her with
love today and crucify her tomorrow.

Think about it, Clark.

Your captivating cuz needs to hide
those baby blues behind glasses...

...and go undercover before a hero-hater
like Godfrey turns his sights on her.

Oh, that's great. You're sweet.
You're sexy. You're powerful.

You're the woman of tomorrow, today.

Let's take a break.

Okay. Let's take five, guys.

It's been a long time, Kal-El.
I missed you.

I missed you too.

A surprise seeing you today.
How long have you been in town?

You didn't come to Earth to be
the first superpowered pin-up girl.

It's critical I get my image around
the city as quickly as possible.

You just have to trust me, Kal-El.
I'm doing this for you.

Kara, this doesn't feel
like much of a favor.

I searched so long for my mother
and I never found her.

You and I are the last survivors
of the House of El.

And after everything
we've been through together...

...I had to come back to the one place
in the universe I have family.

Well, what you're doing right now
flies in the face...

...of how I've chosen to live
on this planet my whole life.

We both know that.

If you really care about family,
tell me what you're doing here...

...and stop avoiding the question.

I didn't want to hurt you.

Jor-El has given me a mission.

And getting my powers and image
around the city are a part of it.

He gave you a mission?

What did he say?

He's let you go, Kal-El. I'm sorry.

He says you're no longer his son.



Not a bad read.

Would you care to comment
on your embarrassing save... a certain girl wonder?

Bless my soul, it's Lois Lane.

If you want a quote,
you'll have to get in line.

You can save your holier-than-thou,
made-for-TV platitudes...

...and drown them in some holy water,

I've had enough of you blindly taking
pot shots at Metropolis' heroes.


You call yourself a journalist, but you're
just a blind follower of these vigilantes.

One of these so-called vigilantes
just saved your skin.

She risked people's lives in a ploy
to undermine the message of my book.

She may fly, but I have a feeling
that blonde bimbo is no angel.

I have people investigating.

They're going to find something on her
and the other superpowered mutants.

How would you feel if someone
started poking around in your life?

I have nothing to hide.

But I do know one vigilante who does.
Green Arrow.

A connection of mine,
who has toyed with him...

...gave me evidence that the Archer
is really a certain depraved playboy.

Your ex-boyfriend I believe.

His secret identity will be revealed...

...when I release the final chapter
of my book online tomorrow.

Even his true believers' faith
will be shaken.

Wow. Mortal Kombat
meets woodchipper. I like it.

You have more to worry about
than a two-by-four.

Ah. I'm glad to see that Africa managed
to survive the whole Lois Lane invasion.

Tell me, what brings
Little Miss Cut-and-Run back to town?

- Destiny.
- That old thing?

- Mm-hm.
- You're not fooling anyone...

...racking up these airline miles.
I know all about preemptive strikes.

Hurt them first
so you don't worry about... you're gonna
let them down.

Then you give them whiplash
by racing back.

Easy with the dress down,
I just ran for the hills...

...because I thought
I was gonna mess things up for Clark.

We are so different, it--
Not a bad different...

...I just don't know how his chocolate
and my peanut butter are gonna mix.


I've never known you to surrender
to anyone or anything.

I'm not actually here to talk about me.

There is a guy, Gordon Godfrey...

...and he thinks that Green Arrow
is my ex-boyfriend.

- He does?
- Mm-hm.

I think we just leave him
alone, you know?

Let the blowhard blow himself out.

In the meantime, I can handle a few
slings and arrows. Sure you can too.

Oliver, Godfrey's got proof.

He has a secret chapter about you
he's gonna post online tomorrow.

He knows who you are.

Well, maybe people deserve
to know the truth.

People deserve to be saved. And it's
safer for you if you're in the shadows.

-It's safer for all the heroes.
- Maybe.

Or maybe the cost of keeping my secret
is too high and it's time to pay the piper.

If you're not gonna kick
this creep to the curb, then I will.

Gordon, that interview was,
hot, hot, hot. But we have a problem.

Your final Chapter's going online
tomorrow and I haven't seen it.

I kept the only copy close to me
for safekeeping.

Didn't want it getting
into the wrong hands.

Well, I'm your publicist, don't you think
I should take a look?

The secret stays with me.

Okay, well, I guess I have to trust you.

I don't know
whats gotten into you lately.

Three weeks ago
you were a small-time radio host... the whole city's listening.

I need you to take me further.

I wanna be on every television, in
every paper, on every computer screen.

I want to touch every soul.

The whole world?
Exactly how do you propose to do that?

If I can plant an idea,
a seed of doubt within people... will grow until it devours their faith
in each other and in these heroes.

Faithless, they'll be ready
to be led down a new path.

Humans are the best architects
of their own undoing.

All you have to do is give them
enough rope, they'll hang themselves.

Take it easy, Gordon.

You sounded a little scary there. Ha, ha.

Why don't you take a break tonight?

Let off some steam.

I'll call you later.

Take me to Club Desaad.

Yes, sir.


KARA: I know about your little shortcut
to the Fortress.

Give me the key.
I wanna talk to my father.

There's no point in confronting Jor-El.

He disowned me and I want to know why.

This is bigger than just Jor-El.

A darkness has come to Earth.

I've been trying to draw it towards me,
so I can stop it.

I was the one sent to Earth to protect it.
Jor-El should have come to me.

- He said you're not ready.
- He's afraid that I'll fail.

After all the trials and all the training
that I've gone through.

He's the one who’s confused,
because I know my own destiny.

Kal-El, you think you have
all the answers...

...but the evil that's coming
is like nothing you've ever seen.

It takes advantage of people's doubts.

There's nothing out there I can't handle.

Pretty strong words from a guy
who can't even figure out his powers.

It's the truth, Kal-El...'ve been on Earth all this time
and you can't even fly.

You can't come at this thing
without all of your abilities.

But what if you can't fight it
on your own?

You'd rather put the world at risk
and trust Jor-El than believe in me?

You're my only family.

And I need your help.

I liked it better when I was
showing you the ropes.

I guess change is in the air.

I guess this is easy for you, huh?

No, it's ...

No, it's not easy or hard.

It just is.

I mean I reach for the sky
and the world just falls away.

I'm not thinking of anything.
I'm just in the moment.





When I try to clear my mind,
the more I hear.

Kal-El instead of trying to force
the noise out...

...why don't you just focus
on one thing... that butterfly.

Live inside that one noise.

Make it your whole world.

It was a start.

It's not flying if it's mostly falling.

I'm sorry.

I shouldn't have gone against
your father's wishes.

- I shouldn't have helped you.
- I just need to figure it out.

You're doubting your powers,
you're frustrated, you can't focus.

You are not ready.

I'm not gonna stand here
and do nothing.

The darkness came through a rip in
the universe three weeks ago.

You think it's just gonna wait around
until you're ready? Just leave it to me.

Three weeks ago?

What? What is it?

I think I know how it came here.

You said the darkness came through
a tear in the universe.

It made sense.

Three weeks ago
I was on this rooftop...

...and I opened a portal
using the Book of Rao.

If the darkness came through a gateway,
maybe it can leave through one.

I've used my bracelet before
to open a portal.

This dark force is like a disease.

How did it become so powerful?

It can see your thoughts and feelings.

It can find the one morsel of doubt that
even the purest person doesn't realize...

...they have inside them.

It can possess you, but it can't possess
someone who's pure of spirit.

Who has true clarity of purpose.
But your father--

Thinks it'll prey upon some weakness
inside of me.


If this dark force possesses someone
with abilities like yours... could be the greatest weapon
this planet has ever seen.


Hey, Dad.

I've been, um...

...really trying to live my life in a way
that would make you proud of me.

I, uh, sort of feel like I've let you down.

You always said the most important thing
was taking care of others and I, uh ...

I tried.

But I failed at that.

The woman that I, uh-- That I love...


She sacrificed everything
to protect me. And, um ...

And I'm sort of trying to figure out
how to live with that.

I can't have other people
risking their lives for me.

This has to stop.

I'm sorry.



You look like a man
who needs a little corrupting.

I'm on the hunt for a little distraction.

I think the hunter
has become the hunted.

Well, well, well.



You've been a bad boy.

So ...


- Dangerous.
- Ha-ha-ha.

What's your favorite tool?

Oh, uh ...

Oh, I'm pretty good
with a torque wrench.


Kinky. I'm a torque wrench virgin.

Oh, ha-ha-ha. Now.
Hands off the merchandise.



Ha, ha. Let's just put these up here, huh?

Looks like somebody likes to be
punished, huh?


Now where were we.

Yo, spray-on-latex sisters.
Hook a mistress up?

You sin on a stick, you just, you know,
smash your body up against his.

And you, you are the girl
his mama warned him about.


That's right. Make him pay.

There we go.

Now that you've got me
under your control...

...what are you going to do with me?

Girls, why don't you go
and spank each other or something.

Things are about to heat up in here.




Great photos.
Definitely page one material.

You're a formidable woman,
Lois Lane.

You're seething with ambition.

With you it's all about the byline.

You'll do anything,
sacrifice anyone for the story.

Oh, that's a little harsh,
don't you think?

How much are those photos
worth to you?

Maybe I can give you something
that's worth more.

What if I shared my evidence
condemning Oliver Queen...

...and gave you the banner headline?

Tempting, but nobody's gonna believe
a word you have to say...

...after they see all these sexy photos.

Done and done.
You're officially fodder for the tabloids.

I don't care about the photos, Lois.

Wow. Heh. Wow, they were fake.

But I guess the purple feathers should
have been a dead giveaway, huh?


I can see that you're pure of heart.

It's too bad.

Taking over that body
would have been fun.

Back off, buddy, or I am gonna burn
all the fur off your arms.


And I thought the Fortress
was your only hideaway.

It's called Watchtower.
It's more of a command post.

I banded together
a group of heroes.

A lot's changed since
the last time I saw you, Kal-El.

Maybe Jor-El underestimated you.

This is how we access the news feeds.

We should cast a wide net, the host
is probably in a leader with influence.

This Godfrey guy, he's everywhere.

He's got a personal vendetta
against heroes.

Any citizen who's been a victim
of the vigilante menace, you're not alone.

They pretend
to be your saving grace...

...then they turn on you
and violate your trust.

[IN EVIL VOICE] These vigilantes are
committing crimes and getting away with it.

Open your eyes, people.

How many times do you hear
about victims who were mugged?

- Do you hear that?
GODFREY: They don't know who it was!

It's called super speed, folks.

[IN EVIL VOICE] Lawless mutants,
like the Blur, are using this power ...

That's it.

GODFREY: prey on the masses.
- The darkness is in Godfrey.

They're predators.

He's been public,
so can't be hard to find him.

--driven by dark.

Okay, I have a street security camera
with a limo.

Looks like Godfrey was downtown
a few hours ago.

The driver with Godfrey.

That's Lois.


Congratulations, Lois.

You've proven yourself
a true believer of these vigilantes.


And your saintly suffering is just
the lure I need to bring the Blur to me.

Fight all you want.
You won't be able to escape your fate.


What is this place?

It's kind of hard to explain,
but just try to blend in.

Are you sure that Lois'
cell phone was tracked here?

According to the computers
at the Watchtower, yeah.

Let's split up.
We'll cover more ground.

Godfrey, I'm here for Lois.

That's too bad...

...her idealism and blind faith
in the vigilantes she loves...

...has gotten her in way over her head.

What have you done with her?
Let her go.

Lois has served her purpose.
She brought one of you to me.

Are you sure you can win against me?

You know what I am.

You know the doubt in your heart.

You so-called heroes are false gods,
all of you.

And when people stop believing in you,
you'll shatter like glass.

Just tell me! Where is she?

I can see it.

Underneath all of that bravado...'re afraid you'll never be the hero
you want to be.

You wish you could kill me.

And I'm not the only one.
I can see that.

You've felt this way before.

Your heart is racing. You're at war with
yourself, the turmoil is overwhelming.

- Where is she?
- There is darkness in you...

...and great power.

I think we'll go far together,
you and I.

I will never help you.

You won't have a choice.

Are you all right?

It's like it could see inside me.


Are you all right?


I think it's time
to blow this bondage ball.

Somebody should put Godfrey
in some serious restraints.

Who knew Mr. Family Values
had such a dark side?

Godfrey's not so special.

There's two sides to everyone...

...even heroes.

Kara, off the record,
what is it like to have powers?

Lois, since I've had my abilities,
I haven't been beholden to anyone.

And I feel like there's nothing
holding me back...

...and I'm free.

That's too bad.

I mean, it's great.

It's just, you're such a bang-up gal.
I thought it might get a little lonely.

Maybe it's easier to be a hero when you
don't have somebody tying you down.

I'm sure you think of people
without powers as--

Well, differently?

You know, it's easy for people
to just see the powers...

...and not the person behind them.

I guess even heroes need someone
to come home to, nun?

How's that for tying up loose ends?

It's gonna take more than a loudmouth
with a deviant sex life to stop me.

A buddy of mine
at the inquisitor ran it for me...

...since leather and lace
really isn't Planet fare.

Lois, I think you went too far trying
to discredit this annoying hero-basher.

You could have been killed.

Godfrey was undermining
Metropolis' faith in its defenders.

I couldn't just stand by
and let that happen.

Well, what you did was brave, but ...

Between you and me, I was terrified.

My worst fear is to be alone
in the world without heroes.

Thank God, Ubergirl-
Powergirl? Megagirl?

Was there to save me
from the gallows.

Your cousin needs a better handle.

Well, just remember that heroes like her
or the Blur--

Put them on too high a pedestal,
they might let you down.

Thanks, Clark, but I get it that
the superpowered are people too.

They wrestle with their own flaws
but the Blur is different.

He's my hero.

No matter what he's afraid of,
I know he'll always be there for me.

Excuse me. I'm sorry.


What do you think of my new look?

I think you look completely different.
Why the sudden cover-up?

You can't save people
when you're the center of attention.

But I'm not going anywhere until I know
Earth is safe from the darkness.

It could be anywhere.

Look, I was wondering.

Your bracelet seemed to repel
the darkness, not send it away.

I don't think
the bracelet will work as a portal.

The dark spirit is trapped
inside of a host.

But you're superpowered.
Why wouldn't the darkness want you?

It's because you're pure of spirit.

That's why you could never lure the
darkness to you with all of your saves.

I don't feel pure of spirit.

I have just as many issues
as anyone else.

But still, you risked your soul
to save me.

And if you hadn’t jumped between us--

The dark spirit would have possessed
you, Kal-El.

Like he could see things
in me I didn't want to face.

Now imagine that creature
wielding all of your powers.

People of this planet would be doomed.

You sound like my father,
that I was destined to fail.

Failure is something
we have to live with...

...but it's how you overcome it
that defines you.

I know this isn't easy for you...

...but I need you to leave the darkness
to me.

This isn't your fight.

Makes you wonder if we put
too much faith in vigilantes.

Maybe the Blur isn't the hero
he thinks he is.

Who's your mama?

- Is that a trick question?
- Ha-ha-ha.

What's, uh--'? What is this?

That is the only copy of the chapter
on Green Arrow...

...that Godfrey was gonna reveal today.

Yours truly picked Godfrey's pocket... you can rest assured
your secret is safe.


Wow, Lois, 007's got nothing
on you.

You're a brilliant and talented
super sleuth.

Thank you. I appreciate it.

I know how much trouble
you must have gone to to get this.

But I can't have the people that I love
fighting my battles for me any more.

What is this?

Does this have anything to do with why
Chloe took an extended vacation?

About that.

Chloe's not catching a tan on a beach
like I told you she was.

The truth is...

...she left, and I don't think
she's coming back.

- What happened? Is she okay?
- She's okay, she's fine...

...but when the person that you love
knows your secret... becomes their secret too.

And she was willing to give up
everything to protect it...

...which, unfortunately included me.

Wait, I think that
she probably just needs space.

I know how she feels about you,
she'll be back.

I hope you're right...

...because this has gone on
long enough.

What's happening.
What are you doing, Oliver?

Doing what I have to.

- Send them in, please.

Thank you all for coming.

I've brought you here
to make an announcement.

People have these
so-called vigilantes all wrong.

There's only one way for me
to set the record straight.

I am Green Arrow.

Mr. Queen, please. What inspired you
to become the masked archer?
